How to make Jamun Kofta

  1. For making kofta: Take jamun mix in a bowl, to this add in green chillies and salt.
  2. Mix them well and sprinkle a little water. Make into a smooth dough. Make desired shaped balls.
  3. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry them on a low flame until dark golden in colour. Drain them on a kitchen towel. Keep aside.
  4. For making gravy: Heat oil in a kadai, add in ginger, garlic, green chillies and onion. Saute them until translucent.
  5. Add in tomatoes, melon seeds and almonds. Fry them until mushy. Allow this mixture to cool. Grind into a smooth paste.
  6. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in the same pan and temper it with cumin seeds. When they turn slightly brown, add in the capsicum and saute for a minute.
  7. Add the ground paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt and sugar. Mix them all well and allow them to cook for 3-5 minutes or until the raw smell goes away.
  8. Add required water and 1/2 cup of milk. Cover and cook them for 2-3 minutes or till the gravy leaves the oil.
  9. Add in the dry fenugreek leaves, garam masala powder and coriander leaves. Mix them well. Cook for a few more minutes and serve hot.

My Tip:

If you have red capsicum, grind them raw with onion, tomato for more color to the gravy. Add the koftas while serving. I have used melon seeds/almonds/milk. Alternatively you can use cashew paste/cream for a more richer taste.
